    Pink Easel: Holiday Crafting!

    Hello beauties! So glad you swung by because today I wanted to share a fun little surprise! But first, let me tell you about my first crafting experience with Pink Easel. I’m so thankful that Bianca, the lovely gal behind Pink Easel reached out and invited me to this because I have literally been dying to try a craft class out! Byron and I set off to Balboa Park this past Sunday and enjoyed a little wine and got down and crafty. Bianca provided all the crafts, she had tons to choose from. From paint, to pom poms, snow, so all we had to do was let our imaginations run…

    Holiday Gift Guide: For the Ladies!

    Hey Loves, happy Friday! Welcome back! I have put together a women’s gift guide with all things that I think the modern girl might love. These are definitely some of my favorite things, from booties, to hats, to make up! Ok, let’s jump in to it: Leopard might as well be a neutral! Leopard print is so trendy right now, and for a good reason. You can be super fun and creative and pair it with so many colors and other prints! UGGS- It doesn’t get too cold here in sunny San Diego, but when it does, whoop those UGGs out girl! I don’t think these cozy boots will ever…

    Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

    It’s officially the season of giving and I’m so excited to start this gift guide series! I will be sharing gift guides this week for all the special people in your life, so get excited! Let’s begin with the fellas! The best way to go about a gift guide for guys, is just to ask them lol. What do they really want? What’s trending? What’s new? I’m not gonna lie, I’m guilty of sometimes picking something stuff out for Byron that I like, but he might not. Especially since I have a real love for poopy colored clothes lol. So in order to avoid that and have him really look…

    Napa Valley Anniversary!

    If you’re looking for a magical place, head to Napa. This trip originally started as a family trip and then somewhere along the lines it ended up being an anniversary trip. I guess in Byron’s mind it was always an anniversary trip and in mine it was a family trip, but to make it less complicated, it just ended up being the two of us. Byron and I have been together on and off for 7 years. We’ve seen really dark times together and well we’ve split up a few times here and there due to those dark times, but somehow, we always seem to find our way back to…

    Mental Health + Social Media.

    I have put this topic off for a while for several reasons. The most obvious one would definitely be that it’s something so private that we choose when and who we open up about it. That’s totally fair, so today I wanted to share my experience. First thing’s first, what is mental health, well let’s Google it. According to Google, it is: a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being. That can range any where from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, etc. I know I always say this, but if you have been around for a while then you know that I have now gone to therapy. If…

    What’s To Come With Soy Libre

    Hi friends! So glad that you decided to stop by. Today I figured I would share some of things I really want to focus on here at Soy Libre and on Instagram. If you’re coming straight from my post on Instagram, then you know that I was away for two days and by that I mean, I was just not active on social media. I felt really uninspired, I didn’t know what to post about, and I kinda felt like I wasn’t being my authentic self and that is definitely not how I want to come across. I always say I want to be as transparent as possible and that…

    Hair Day’s Made Easy.

    When I was little girl, I had insanely long hair and hated when my mom would do my hair. It was always braided because there was really nothing else that would help from keeping it tangled. I grew up hating having my hair brushed because my mom didn’t really make I a fun experience. This story however is not about me, it’s about little miss Leya. I have made it a really strong point in our routine to make this hair experience a good one. I play her favorite show, let her pick out her bow or scrunchies and these are some of the products that make our lives easier.…

    Curent Fave Foundation: barePRO by Bare Minerals.

    Happy Sunday loves! Today we’re talking make up-woohoo! Specifically the Bare Minerals barePRO liquid foundation. Ever since I became a mom I’ve noticed that my want and expectations for make up have changed. I sleep less and am up earlier. I work for 8+ hours, and usually after I’m still running around like a mad woman, running errands, cleaning, cooking, you name it. As a mom I feel like I’m constantly putting foundations to the test and without even trying. I purchase so many different ones that claim to be long lasting and matte from the drug store to high end and there has been a few that have definitely…

    End of Summer Lucheon: Bringing Awarness to Abuse.

    Hi loves, so glad you decide to swing by because today I’m chatting about a topic that is very sensitive but so close to my heart. Last Saturday, September 9th, I was invited to attend a luncheon hoested by the lovely Camaryn, also known as @camarynsullivan on Instagram. Her event was at 264 Fresco in Carlsbad, and not only was it so beautiful but it was meant to really expose and inspire other women to the help or support anyone who has been in an abusive relationship. She invited Brandee, a represenative from the Women’s Resource Center to speak and share more about domestic violence, and how domestic violence is…
